Our Story

Ahara was founded by Dr. Melina Jampolis,  physician nutritionist specialist, and Julie Wainwright, a serial tech entrepreneur and most recently founder and CEO of The RealReal.

Ahara was conceived by Dr. Melina and Julie, long time friends as well as doctor and patient. As a patient, Julie realized that Dr. Melina’s proven, food-first nutritional philosophy for better health could be accessible to everyone through technology. By leveraging the power of multi-omic inputs from the health questionnaire, genetic, epigenetic and biomarker testing, Ahara fuses technology, nutritional science and data science to deliver a proprietary personalized nutrition solution like no other. 

You get the experience of working with an international team of world-class nutrition experts at a fraction of the cost. If you are focused on improving your nutritional health and overall well being, Ahara is the solution.
